    1. Rainbow Grocery has real barley malt powder (in the bulk section)... great for malted milk, milkshakes, baking, etc, etc.

      Its much better than the Horlicks or the Carnation brand stuff that has hydrogenated oils and stuff in it.

        1. We split off some replies about cooking with malted milk powder and barley milk powder to a new thread on the Home Cooking board. You can find that thread here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/572347

          1. I pondered this question a couple months ago.

            In Oakland, I stopped at Food Mill on MacArthur. They had both Malted barley powder and malted milk powder. Which is when I finally realized malted milk powder is just malted barley with powdered milk.

            Kind of expensive though. I wonder if malted barley powder is the same thing as the malted barley you can get at homebrew supply stores. If so, much cheaper at the homebrew places.

              Most of the commercial malted milk powders available (ie. Horlicks, Carnation) also contain transfats, not just malted barley powder and milk powder. I don't remember the source of the transfats as its been awhile since I've purchased those since I discovered the straight malted barley powder, but I remember being very disappointed that they were in there. Also, the malted barley powder is soooo good, I can dip my finger in it and eat it straight, though I usually don't! It certainly doesn't need embellishing by milk powder or anything else.
